You can find videos of the Dovo factory making and honing razors. They hone razors on convex Coticules. Jarod of The Superior Shave sells these hones. He went to the Dovo factory to learn how to hone using the Dovo method. I understand that he is the only individual certified in the USA to hone Dovo razors without voiding the Dovo guarantee. If you consider Coticule edges to be suitable for your beard, then you might like the Dovo factory edges. However, I have yet to shave with a Coticule edge that would shave my coarse beard without tugging. With the right Coticule and the right technique someone might be able to produce a suitable edge for me, but I have yet to experience such an edge. I consider a Coticule to be a prefinisher that needs to be followed by a finer hone to produce a sharper edge. I have read many comments from others who have expressed a similar opinion of Coticules. I do realize that there are folks who can shave off a Norton 8K and those who love Coticule edges, but I am not one of them. A 12K edge is the minimum level at which I can shave; I prefer to finish on even finer hones. When I purchased a Dovo Bismark, the first shave off the factory edge was poor. I immediately rehoned the razor and it now provides a great shave.
